Hymn 1. 


" I myself will awake right early." 

A WAKE, my soul, and with the sun 
l\_ Thy daily stage of duty run ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

Redeem thy mis-spent time that's past, 
And live this day as if thy last ; 
Improve thy talent with due care, 
For the great day thyself prepare. 

Let all thy converse be sincere, 
Thy conscience as the noon-day clear; 
Think how all-seeing God thy ways 
And all thy secret thoughts surveys. 

By influence of the Light divine 
Let thy own light in good works shine ; 
Reflect all heaven's propitious rays 
In ardeut love and cheerful praise. 

Part II. 

TTTAKE and lift up thyself, my heart, 
\ \ And with the angels bear thy part, 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
Glory to the Eternal King. 

I wake, I wake, ye heavenly choir, 
May your devotion me inspire, 
That I like you my age may spend, 
Like you may on my God attend. 

May I like you in God delight, 
Have all day long my God in sight, 
Perform like you my Maker's will, 
O may I never more do ill. 

Had I your wings to heaven I'd fly, 
But God shall that defect supply, 
And my soul, winged with warm desire, 
Shall all day long to heaven aspire. 

Part III. 

n LORY to Thee Who safe hast kept 

IT And hast refreshed me while I slept ; 

Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake, 

I may of endless light partake. 

I would not wake, nor rise again, 

E'en heaven itself I would disdain, 

Wert Thou not rnoe to be enjoyed, 

And I in hymns to be employed. 

Heaven is, dear Lord, where'er Thou art, 

O never, then, from me depart ; 

For to my soul 'tis hell to be 

But for one moment without Thee. 

Lord, I my vows to Thee renew, 

Scatter my sins as morning dew ; 

Guard my first springs of thought and will, 

And with Thyself my spirit fill. 

Direct, control, suggest this day 

All I design, or do, or say ; 

That all my powers with all their might » 

In Thy sole glory may unite. 

Doxnlogy to be sung at the end of each Part. 
Praise God. from Whom all blessings i\ovr; 
Praise Him, all creatures here below; 

Praise Him above, angelic host ; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

" His compassions fail not ; 
ATEW every morning is the love 
1\ Our wakening and uprising prove ; 
Through sleep and darkness safely brought, 
Restored to life, and power, and thought. 
New mercies, each returning day, 
Hover around us while we pray ; 
New perils past, new sins forgiven, 
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 
If on our daily course our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find, 

"f r i 

they are new every morning. 1 ' 

New treasures still, of countless price, 

God will provide for sacrifice. 

The trivial round, the common task, 

Will furnish all we need to ask, 

Room to deny ourselves, a road 

To bring us daily nearer God. 

Only, O Lord, in thy dear love 

Fit us for perfect rest above; 

And help us, this and every day, 

To live more nearly as we pray. Amen.

He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." 

From sudden falls our feet defend, 
And guide us safely to the end. 

OJESU, Lord of light and grace, 
Thou brightness of the Father's Face, 
Thou fountain of eternal light, 
Whose beams disperse the shades of night ; 
Come, Holy Sun of heavenly love, 
Come in Thy radiance from above, 
And to our inward hearts convoy 
The Holy SPIRITS cloudless ray. 
So we the Father's help will claim,

For ever and for evermore. Amen.

Teach me to die, that so I may

Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,

Praise Him above, angelic host ; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghogt.

SUN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear, 
It is not night if Thou be near; 
O may no earth-born cioud arise 
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes. 
When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 
Re my last thought how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviours breast. 
Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die 

If some poor wandering child of Thine 
Have spurned to-day the voice divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin ; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 
Watch by the sick enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store ; 
Re every mourner's sleep to-night, 
Like infant's slumbers, pure and light 
Come near and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take ; 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 
We lose ourselves in Heaven above. Amen.

And in Those Arms to die.

4 Abide with us ; for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent." 

ABIDE with me ; fast falls the even-tide ; 
The darkness deepens ; Loed, with me abide ; 
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, 
Help of the helpless, O abide with me. 

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day ; 
Earth's joys grow dim ; its glories pass away ; 
Change and decay in all around I see ; 

Thou Who changest not, abide with me. 

1 need Thy presence every passing hour ; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be ? 
Through cloud and sunshine, Lokd, abide with me. 

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless ; 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness ; 
Where is death's sting, where, grave, thy victory? 
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me. 

Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes ; 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies ; 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows fleo; 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me. Amen. 


Hymn 15. 


1 Let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.' 
"UIE sun is sinking fast, 

The daylight dies; 
Let love awake, and pay 

Her evening sacrifice. 
As Christ upon the Cross 

His Head inclined, 
And to His Father's hands 

His parting Soul resigned ; 
So now herself my soul 

Would wholly give 

Into His sacred charge, 

In Whom all spirits live; 
So now beneath His Eye 

Would calmly rest, 
Without a wish or thought 

Abiding in the breast ; 
Save that His Will be done, 

Whatever betide ; 
Dead to herself, and dead 

In Him to all beside. 

Thus would I live ; yet now 

Not I, but He 
In all His power and love 

Henceforth alive in me. 
One Sacred Trinity ! 

One Lord Divine! 
May I be ever His, 

And He for ever mine. 


Hymn 16. 

" I will lay me down 

THROUGH the dayThy love has spared 
Now we lay us down to rest ; 
Through the silent watches guard us, 
Let no foe our peace molest ; 

Jesu, Thou our Guardian be ; 
Sweet it is to trust in Thee. 

in peace, and take my rest.'" 

Pilgrims here on earth, and strangers, 

Dwelling in the midst of foes, 
Us and ours preserve from dangers, 
In Thine Arms may we r 

And. when life's sad day is past, 
Rest with Thee in heaven at last

The lion's wrath to tame; 
By faith they spurned the tyrant's threats 

And scorned the raging flame. 
Lonn, grant that we the path may tread 

Whereon its light doth shine ; 
And gather as we onward go, 

The fruits of love divine. 
O praise the Fatiif.p. ; praise the Son 

From Whose most precious Blood 
Springs all our faith; and praise to Hira 

Who with them Both is God. Amen.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which He had made." 

Come, Lord, create his heart anew; 

His heart of stone remove: 
Then hymns of praise again shall rise, 

The fruits of holy love. 
Oh ! for the songs that Thou wilt bless 

Where heart and voice agree : 
Oh ! for the prayers that plead aright 

With Thy dread Majesty. 
All praise to God, the Three in One, 

Who high in glory reigns ; 
Who by His Word has all things made, 

And by His Word sustains. Amen. 

SIX days of labour now are past ; 
The j rests, Holy Goo; 
And with approving Eye hast seen 

That all is very good. 
Blest is the seventh morn of light, 

Hallowed for rest divine ; 
Yet. Lord, a new creation needs 

That mighty power of Thine. 
Ten thousand voices praise Thy Name 

In earth and sea and sky ; 
But fallen man by sin has marred 
The blissful harmony.

And we must hymns of welcome sing 

In strains of holy joy.

Nor let thy faithless heart despise

Behold thy King cometh unto thee."

And His true members all unite 

With Him in heaven to reign. 
Before the dawning day 

Let sin's dark deeds be gone ;

\J The end of things created : 
The Judge of all men doth appear 
On clouds of glory seated : 

The trumpets sound, the graves restore 
The dead which they contained before ; 

Prepare, my soul, to meet Him. 

The dead in Christ are first to rise 

At that last trumpet's sounding ; 
Caught up to meet Him in the skies, 

With joy their Loed surrounding; 
No gloomy fears their souls dismay ; 
His presence sheds eternal day 

On those prepared to meet Him. 

The ungodly, filled with guilty fears, 

Behold His wrath prevailing ; 
In woe they rise, but all their tears 

And sighs are unavailing. 
The day of grace is past and gone; 
Trembling they stand before His throne, 

All unprepared to meet Him. 

Great Judge, to Thee our prayers we pour, 

In deep abasement bending; 
O shield us through that last dread hour, 

Thy wondrous love extending; 
May we in this our trial day, 
With faithful hearts Thy word obey, 

And thus prepare to meet Thee. Amen.

I bring good tidings of a Saviour's birth

This day hath God fulfilled His promised word,

And heaven's whole orb with alleluias rang

Peace upon earth, and unto men good-will.

To see the wonders God had wrought for man; 

Then to their flocks, still praising God, return, 

And their glad hearts with holy rapture burn; 

To all the joyful tidings they proclaim, 

The first apostles of the Saviour's Name. 

Oh ! may we keep and ponder in our mind

Trace we the Babe, Who hath retrieved our loss, 

From the poor manger to the bitter cross; 

Tread in His steps, assisted by His grace, 

Till man's first heavenly slate again takes place.

Now, LORD, be Thou in mercy nigh, 
And spare Thy servants when they cry;

Nor secret foe the heart possess ; 

Our flesh keep chaste, that it maybe 
A holy temple unto Thee.

Our hearts in prayer would humbly sue, 
That pure and free from inward staiu

A HYMN for Martyrs sweetly sing ; 
For Innocents your praises bring; 
Of whom in tears was earth bereaved, 
Whom heaven with songs of joy received : 
Whose angels see the Father's Face 
World without end, and hymn His grace, 
And, while they praise their glorious King 
A hymn for Martyrs sweetly sing. 

A voice from Ham ah was there sent, 
A voice of weeping and lament. 
While Rachel mourned her children 6ore 
Whom for the tyrant's sword she bore. 
Triumphal is their glory now 
Whom earthly suffering could not bow; 
For whom by cruel torments rent, 
A voice from Raman was there sent. 

Fear not, O little flock and blest, 
The lion that your life oppressed: 
To heavenly pastures ever new 
The heavenly Shepherd leadeth you, 
Who dwelling now on Sion's hill 
The Lamb's own footsteps follow still, 
By tyrant there no more distressed ; 
Fear not, O little flock and blest. 

And every tear is wiped away 

By your dear Fatiikr's hands for aye: 

Death hath no power to hurt you more; 

Your own is life's eternal shore. 

And all who, good seed bearing, weep, 

In everlasting joy shall reap; 

What time they shine in heavenly day, 

And every tear is wiped away. Amen.

'Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." 

THE Word, with God the Father One 
Before the heavens and earth were made, 
Is now the Virgin's new-born Son, 
Upon her lowly bosom laid. 
Already o'er His sinless Head 
The streams of wrath begin to flow; 
Already on !!is infant bed 
The taste of grief lie deigns to know. 
The lowliest poverty he bears 
That we may be with wealth supplied ; 

He weeps ; O precious grief and tears! 
Through Him the world is purified. 
An humble dress, a mean abode, 
A life obscure 11 is glory hide ; 
Proud man, behold thy lowly Gon, 
And let the sight destroy thy pride.

To be the LAMB for sinners slain, 
Leave not Thy ransomed flock to die. 
Nor let Thy toil be spent in vain. Amen.

1 We have seen His star in the east.*' 

~f Y'lIAT star is this, with beams so bright, 

II More beauteous than the noon-day 
It shines to herald forth the King, [light ? 
And Gentiles to His cradle bring. 
See now fulfilled what God decreed, 
41 From Jacob shall a star proceed ;" 
And eastern sages with amaze 
Upon the wondrous vision gaze. 
The guiding star above is bright, 
Within them shines a clearer light, 
Which leads them on with power benign 
To seek the Giver of the sign. 

True love can brook no dull delay ; 
Nor toil nor dangers stop their way ; 
Home, kindred, father-land, and all 
They leave at their Creator's call. 
O Jesu ! while the star of grace 
Allures us now to seek Thy Face, 
Let not our slothful hearts refuse 
The guidance of that light to use. 
All glory, Jesu, be to Thee 1 
For this Thy glad Epiphany, 
Whom with the Father we adore 
And Holy Giiost for evermore. Amen. 

Hymn 59. 

• And thou, Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least, among the Princes oi Judft* 
for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule My people Israel." 

T7ARTH has many a noble city; 
I j Bethlehem, thou dost all excel ; 

Out of thee the Lord from heaven 

Came to rule His Israel. 
Fairer than the sun at morning 

Was the star that told His birth, 
To the world its God announcing 

Seen in fleshly form on earth. 
Eastern sages at His cradle 

Made oblations rich and rare ; 

See them give, in deep devotion. 

Gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. 
Sacred gifts of mystic mea 

Incense doth theirG-OD disclose, 
Gold the King of sings proclaimeth, 

Myrrh His sepulchre foreshows. 
Jesu, Whom the Gentiles worshipped 

Ai Thy glad Epiphany, 
Unto Thee, with G-on the Father 

And the SriiiiT, glory be. Amen. 


' The Life was manifested, and we have seen it." 

WHY doth that impious Herod fear, 
When told that Cheist the King is near 
He takes not earthly realms away, 
Who gives the realms that ne'er decay. 
The Eastern sages saw from far 
And followed on His guiding star; 
By light their way to Light they trod, 
And by their gifts confessed their God. 
Within the Jordan's sacred flood 
The heavenly Lamb in meekness stood, 

That He, to Whom no sin was known, 

Might cleanse His people from their own. 

And oh ! what miracle divine, 

When water reddened into wine ; 

He spake the word, and forth it flowed 

In streams that nature ne'er bestowed. 

All glory, Jesu, be to Thee 

For this Thy glad Epiphany 

Whom with the Father we adore 

And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen. 

Hymn 61. 

" The people which sat i 

THE people that in darkness sat 
A glorious Light have seen ; 
The Light has shined on them who long 

In shades of death have been. 
To hail Thee, Sun of Righteousness, 

The gathering nations come ; 
Their joy as when the reapers bear 

Their harvest treasures home. 
For Thou their burden dost remove, 

And break the tyrant's rod, 
As in the day when Midian fell 

Before the sword of God. 
For unto us a Child is born, 

To us a Son is given, 

darkness saw great light." 

And on His Shoulder ever rests 

All power in earth and heaven. 
nis Name shall be the Prince of Peace, 

The Everlasting Loud, 
Th;; Wonderful, the Counsellor, 

The God by all adored. 
His righteous government and power, 

Shall over all extend ; 
On judgment and on justice based,

And Holy Spibit One. Amen. 

Hymn 62. 


44 And He went down with them, and came 

THE Heavenly Child in stature grows, 
And, growing, learns to die ; 
And still His early training shows 

His coming agony. 
The Son of God His glory hides 

With parents mean and poor ; 
And He Who made the heavens abides 

In dwelling-place obscure. 
Those mighty Hands that rule the sky 

No earthly toil refuse ; 

to Nazareth, and was subject unto them. 1 * 
The Maker of the stars on high 

An humble trade pursues. 
He Whom the choirs of angels praisa, 

Bearing each dread decree, 
His earthly parents now obeys, 

In deep humility. 
For this Thy lowliness revealed, 

Jesu, we Thee adore ; 
And praise to God the Father yield 

And Spirit evermore. Amen.

No sound is heard more full of bliss, 
No thought brings sweeter comfort nigh, 
Than Jesus, Son of God most High.

How good to them for sin that mourn ! 
To them that seek Thee, oh how kind ! 
But what art Thou to them that find ?

O Jesu, King of wondrous might ! 
O Victor, glorious from the fight! 
Sweetness that may not be expressed, 
And altogether loveliest !

Fulfil us with Thy grace, we pray; 
And with Thine own true sweetness feed 
Our souls from sin and darkness freed.

afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that 
they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." 

HOW blest were they who walked in love 
With CHBi8T,while yet He dwelt above ; 
A righteous band, sustained by grace; 
The fathers of the faithful race. 
O who can tell as should be told 
The praises of those men of old, 
Their patient faith, their longing sighs 
Of hope uplifted to the skies ? 
Strangers and pilgrims here below 
They deemed the world an empty show ; 

To purer joys their hearts were given; 
The better land they sought was Heaven, 
The soul that truly cleaves to God 
Still longs to gain that blest abode : 
O Christ, forbid our souls to roam, 
And fix them on our own true Home. 
All praise to God the Father be ;

With all our labours done ? 
We sow 'mid perils here and tears ; 
There the glad hand the harvest bears, 

Which here in grief hath sown : 
Great Three in One, the increase give ; 
These gifts of grace, by which we live, 

With heavenly glory crown. Amen. 
The Hymns for Sunday and other days 6/ the week may fitly be used at this season. 

Hymn 73. 


i^s_ r . f >_k 

Rend your heart and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God." 

ONCE more the solemn season calls 
A holy fast to keep ; 
And now within the temple walls 

Both priests and people weep. 
But vain all outward sign of grief, 

And vain the form of prayer, 
Unless the heart implore relief, 

And penitence be there. 
We smite the breast, we weep in vain, 

In vain in ashes mourn, 
Unless with penitential pain 
The smitten soul be torn. 

In sorrow true then let us pray 

To our offended God, 
From us to turn His wrath away 

And stay the uplifted rod. 
O God, our Judge and Father, deign 

To spare the bruised reed ; 
We pray for time to turn again, 

For grace to turn indeed. 
Blest Three in One, to Thee we bow ; 

Vouchsafe us, in Thy love, 
To gather from these fasts below 

Immortal fruit above. Amen.

1 Now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, 
and with weeping, and with mourning." 

BY precepts taught of ages past, 
Now let us keep again the fast 
Which, year by year, in order meet 
Of forty days is made complete. 
The law and seers that were of old 
In divers ways this Lent foretold, 
Which Christ Himself, the Lord and Guide 
Of every season, sanctified. 
More sparing therefore let us make 
The words we speak, the food we take, 
Deny ourselves in mirth and sleep, 
In stricter watch our senses keep. 
In prayer together let us fall, 
And cry for mercy, one and all ; 
And weep before the Judge, and say, 
Oh, turn from us Thy wrath away. 

Hymn 75 

Thy grace have we offended sore 
By sins, O God, which we deplore ; 
Pour down upon us from above 
The riches of Thy pardoning love. 
Remember, Loed, though frail we be, 
That yet Thine handiwork are we : 
Nor let the honour of Thy Name 
Be by another put to shame. 
Forgive the sin that we have wrought, 
Increase the good that we have sought ; 
That v.-e at length, our wanderings o'er, 
May please Thee here and evermore, 
Blest Three in One and One in Three, 
Almighty (rod, re pray to Thee, 
That Thou wouldst now vouchsafe to bless 
Our fast with fruits of righteousness. 

1 O deliver us, and be merciful unto our sins, for Thy Name's sake. 1 

A MERCIFUL Creator, hear; 
\ / To us in pity bow Thine ear: 
Accept the tearfel prayer we raise 

In this our fast of forty days. 
Each heart is manifest to Thee; 
Thou knowest our infirmity: 
Repentant now we seek Thy Face ; 
Impart to us Thy pardoning grace. 
Our sins are manifold and sore, 
But spare Thou who that sin deplore ; 

And forThine own Name's sake makewhole 

The fainting and the weary soul. 

Grant us to mortify each sense 

By means of outward abstinence, 

That so from every stain of sin 

The soul may keep her fast within. 

Bit st Thrice in One and One in Three,

Thai Thou wouldst now vouchsafe to bless 

Our fast with fruits of righteousness.

Teach us to feel the sins we own,

Then let a kindling glance from Thee

And not a thought our bosoms share, 
Which is not wholly Thine.

" God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ." 

THE Royal Banners forward go, 
The Cross shines forth in mystic glow ; 
"Where He in flesh, our flesh Who made, 
Our sentence bore, our ransom paid. 
There whilst He hung, His sacred Side 
By soldier's spear was opened wide, 
To cleanse us in the precious flood 
Of Water mingled with His Blood. 
Fulfilled is now what David told 
In true prophetic song of old, 
How God the heathen's King should be 
For God is reigning from the tree. 

O tree of glory, tree most fair, 
Ordained those Holy Limbs to bear, 
How bright in purple robe it stood, 
The purple of a Saviour's Blood ! 
Upon its arms, like balance true, 
He weighed the price for sinners due, 
The price which none but He could pay, 
And spoiled the spoiler of his prey. 
To Thee, Eternal Three in One, 
Let homage meet by all be done ; 
As by the Cross Thou dost restore, 
So rule and guide us evermore. Amen.

SINNER, lift the rye of faith, 
To true repentance turning; 
Bethink thee of the curse of sin, 

Its awful guilt discerning ; 
Upon the Crucified One look 
And thou shalt read, as in a hook, 
What well is worth thy learning. 

Look on His Head, that hlecding Head, 
With crown of thorns surrounded 

Look on His sacred Hands and Feet, 
Which piercing nails have wounded ; 

See every Limb with scourges rent : 

On Him, the Just, the Innocent, 
What malice hath abounded! 

'Tis not alone those Limbs are racked, 
But friends too are forsaking; 

And more than all, for thankless man 
That tender Heart is aching; 

Oh, fearful was the pain and scorn 

By Jesus, Son of Mary, borne, 
Their peace for sinners making. 

None ever knew such pain before, 

Such infinite affliction ; 
None ever felt a grief like His 

In that dread crucifixion : 
For us He bare those bitter throes, 
For us those agonizing woes 

In oft-renewed infliction. 

O sinner, mark, and ponder well 

Sin"s awful condemnation ; 
Think what a sacrifice it cost 

To purchase Thy salvation; 
Had Jesus never bled and died. 
Then what could thee and all betido 

But uttermost damnation? 

Lord, give us grace to flee from sin, 
And Satan's wiles ensnaring, 

And from those everlasting flames 
For evil ones preparing. 

Jesu, we thank Thee, and entreat 

To rest for ever at Thy feet.

1 The love of Christ constraineth us." 

IN the Lord's atoning griof 
Be our rest and sweet relief; 
Store we deep In heart 1 ! recess 
All the shame and bitterness. 

Thorn, and cross, and nails, and lance, 
Wounds, our treasure that enhance, 
Vinegar, and gall, and reed, 
And the pang His soul that freed, 

May these all our spirits sate, 
And with love inebriate ; 

In our souls plant virtue's root, 
And mature its glorious fruit. 

Crucified ! we Thee adore, 
Thee with all our hearts implore, 
Us with saintly bands unite 
In the realms of heavenly light 

Christ, by coward hands betrayed, 
Christ, for us a captive made, 
Christ, upon the bitter tree 
Slain for man, be praise to Thee. Amen.

" Who loved me and gave Himself for me." 

SACRED Head, surrounded 
By crown of piercing thorn I 
O Weeding Head, so wounded, 

Reviled, and put to scorn ! 
Death's pallid hue comes o'er Thee, 

The glow of life decays, 
Yet angel-hosts adore Thee, 
And tremble as they ga%e. 

I see Thy strength and vigour 

All fading in the strife, 
And death with cruel rigour 

Bereaving Thee of life ; 
O agony and dying ! 

O love to sinners free ! 
Jhsu, all grace supplying, 

O turn Thy Face on me. 


In this Thy bitter passion, 

Good Shepherd, think of me, 
With Thy most sweet compassion, 

Unworthy though I be : 
Beneath Thy Cross abiding, 

For ever would I rest ; 
In Thy dear love confiding, 

And with Thy presence blest. Amen.

" Now there stood by the Cross of Jesus His Mother." 

AT the Cross her station keeping 
Stood the mournful Mother weeping, 
Where Ho hung, the dying Lord ; 
For her soul of joy bereaved, 
Bowed with anguish, deeply grieved, 
Felt the sharp and piercing sword. 

Oh, how sad and sore distressed, 
Now was she, that Mother blessed 

Of the sole-begotten One ; 
Deep the woe of her affliction 
When she saw the Crucifixion 

Of her ever-glorious Son. 

Who, on Christ's dear Mother gazing 
Pierced by anguish so amazing, 
Born of woman, would not weep ? 

Who, on Christ's dear Mother thinking 
Such a cup of sorrow drinking, 
Would not share her sorrows deep 

For His people's sins chastised 

She beheld her Son despised, [twined. 

Scourged, and crowned with thorns en- 
Saw Him then from judgment taken, 
And in death bv all forsaken, 

Till His Spirit He resigned. 

Je8U, may such deep devotion 
Stir in me the same emotion, 

Fount of love, Redeemer kind. 
That my heart fresh ardour gaining 
And a purer love attaining, 

May with Thee acceptance find. Amen. 

Hymn 99. $pttin0 Ott tf)0 PaSSiQtt. 

" Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass hy ? 
like unto My 

SEE the destined day arise ! 
See, a willing Sacrifice, 
Jesus, to redeem our loss, 
Hangs upon the shameful Cross ! 
Jesu, who hut Thou had borne, 
Lifted on that tree of scorn, 
Every pang and hitter throe, 
Finishing Thy life of woe ? 
Who but Thou had dared to drain 
Steeped in gall the cup of pain, 

Behold and see if there be any sorrow 

And with tender body bear 
Thorns, and nails, and piercing spear? 
Thence the cleansing Water flowed, 
Mingled from Thy Side with Blood; 
Sign to all attesting eyes 
Of the finished Sacrifice. 
Holy Jesu, grant us grace 
In that Sacrifice to place 
All our trust for life renewed, 
Pardoned sin, and promised good. Amen. 

Hymn 100. 

" They crucified Him." 

0COME and mourn with me awhile ; 
O comt! ye to the Saviour's side ; 
O come, together let us mourn ; 
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 
Have we no tears to shed for Him, 
While soldiers scoff and Jews deride? 
Ah 1 look how patiently He hangs ; 
Jksus, our Lord, is crucified. 
How fast His Hands and Feel arc nailed ; 
His Throat with parching thirst is dried; 
His failing Eyes are dimmed with Blood ; 
J ecus, our Lord, is crucified. 

Seven times He spake, seven words of W'e; 
And all three hours His silence cried 
For mercy on the souls of men ; 
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 
Come, let* us stand beneath the Cross; 
So may the Blood from out His Side 
Fall gently on us drop hy drop; 
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 
A broken heart, a fount of tears 
Ask, and they will not be denied ; 
Lord Jesus, may wo love and weep, 
Since Thou for us art crucified, Amen, 

Hymn ioi. |>jmns on tbc Passion. 

11 "What things were gain to me, 
TXTHEN I survey the wondrous Cross 
>> On which the Prince of Glory died, 
My richest gain I count but loss, 
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast 
Save in the Cross of Christ my Gon; 
All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to His Blood. 

See from His Head, His Hands, His Feet, 
borrow and love flow mingling down ; 

those I counted loss for Christ. M 

Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns ctmpose so rich a crown ? 

Were the whole realm of uature mine, 
That were an offering far too small ; 
Love so amazing, so divine, 
Demands my life, my soul, my all. 

To Cnr.isT, Who won for sinners grace 
By bitter grief and anguish sore, 
Be praise from all the ransomed race 
For ever and for evermore. Amen. 

Hymn 102. 

' Christ also suffered for us, leaving an example that ye should follow His steps." 

ANGELS, lament ; behold your God 
Man's sinful likeness wears; 
Behold, upon the accurst'-d tree 
Man's sins the SaVIODB hears. 

O CHRIST, with wondering minds we see mighty love waa Thine ; 

Did God consent to suffer thus, 
And, oh, shall man repine. 

No, Saviour, no I the power of death 
Thy Cross hath overoome, 

To save us, not from earthly woe 
But from th' eternal doom. 

The flesh may shrink, bat we submit, 

WhateVr our Cross may be, 
So Thou hy grace enable us 

To bear it at'n r Thee, 

Thy stripes have healed us, and Thy Blood 

Our guilty stains effaced ; 
Then may Thy Name by sin of ours 

Bo nevor more disgraced. Amen.

"And when Joseph had taken the Body, he wrapped It in a clean linen cloth, and 
laid It in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out of the rock. . . . And there 
was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sittins over against the sepulchre." 

RESTING from His work to-day 
In the tomb the Sayioub lay ; 

Still He slept, from Head to Feet 
Shrouded in the winding sheet, 
Lying in the rock alone, 
Hidden by the sealed stone. 
Late at even there was seen 
Watching long the Magdalene ; 
Early, ere the break of day, 
Sorrowful she took her way 
To the holy garden glade, 
Where her buried Lokd was laid. 

So with Thee, till life shall end, 

I would solemn vigil spend ; 

Let mc hew Thee, Lonn, a shrine 

In this rocky heart of mine. 

Where in pur I cell * 

None but Thou may ever dwell. 

Myrrh and spices will I bring, 

True affection's offering; 

Close the door from sight and sound 

Of the busy worl 1 around; 

And in patient watch remain 

Till my LofiJD appear again. Amen.

YE choirs of new Jerusalem, 
Your sweetest notes employ, 
The Paschal victory to hymn 

In strains of holy joy. 
For Judah's Lion burst His chains, 

Crushing the serpent's head ; 
And cries aloud through death's domains 

To wake the imprisoned dead. 
Devouring depths of hell their prey 

At His command restore ; 
His ransomed hosts pursue their way 

Where Jesus goes before.

Within His palace bright to bring 

And keep us evermore.

All glory to the Son ; 
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee,

CHRIST, the heavens' Eternal King 
Creator, unto Thee we sing; 
With God the Father ever Oue, 
Co-equal, co-eternal Son ; 
Thy Hand, when first the world began, 
Made in Thine own pure Image man ; 
And linked to fleshly form of earth 
A living soul of heavenly birth. 
And when the envious, crafty foe 
Had marred Thy noblest work below, 
Thou didst our ruined state repair 
By deigning flesh Thyself to wear. 
Once of a Virgin born to save, 
And now new-born from death's dark grave, 
O Christ, Thou bidst us rise with Thee 
From death to immortality. 

Eternal Shepherd, Thou art wont 
To cleanse Thy sheep within the font ; 
That mystic bath, that grave of sin, 
Where ransomed souls new life begin. 
Divine Redeemer, Thou didst deign 
To bear for us the Cross of pain ; 
And freely pay the precious office 
Of all Thy Blood in sacrifice; 
Jesu, do Thou to every heart 
Unceasing Paschal joy impart, 
From death of sin and guilty strife 
Bet firee the new -born sons of life.

And hear angelic watchers say, 

" He lives, Who once was slain : 
Why seek the living 'midst the dead? 
Remember how the Saviour said 

That he would rise again."

He rose, and left the grave I 
Now let our songs His triumph tell, 
Who burst the bands of death and hell, 

And ever lives to save. 

"The First-begotten of the dead.' 1 

The First-begotten of the dead, 
For us He rose, our glorious Head, 

Immortai life to bring; 
What though the saints like Him shall die, 
They share their Leader's victory, 

And triumph with their King. 
No more they tremble at the grave, 
For Jesus will their spirits save, 

And raise their slumbering dust: 
O risen Lord, in Thee we live, 
To Thee our ransomed souls we give, 

To Thee our bodies trust. Amen.

I am He that liveth, and was dead ; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen ; 
and have the keys of hell and of death." 1 ' 

TESUS lives! no longer now 
Can thy terrors, Death, nppal us; 
Jesus lives ! by this we know 

Thou, O Grave, canst not enthral us. 
Jesus lives! henceforth Is death 
But the gate of Life Immortal; 
This shall calm our trembling breath, 
When we pass its gloomy portal. 
Alleluia ! 
Jesus lives I for us He died ; 
Then, alone to Jesus living, 


Pure in heart may we abide, 
Glory to our Saviour giving. 

Jesus lives ! our hearts know well 

Nought from us Ilis love shall sever 5 
Life, nor deatli, nor powers of hell 
Tear us from His keeping ever. 
Alleluia ! 
Jesus lives! to Him the Throne 

Over all the world is given : 
May we go where He is gone, 
Rest and reigu with Him in Heaven. 
Alleluia ! Amen.

" When thou liest down, thou shalt not he afraid ; yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy 
Evening. sleep shall he sweet."' 

JESU, the world's redeeming Lord, 
The Father's co-eternal Word, 
Of Light invisible true Light, 
Thine Israel's keeper day and night; 
Our great Creator and our Guide, 
Who times and seasons dost divide, 
Refresh at night with quiet rest 
Our limbs by daily toil oppressed. 
Tbat while in weary house of clay 
A little longer here we stay, 
Our flesh in Thee may sweetly sleep, 
Our souls with Thee their vigils keep. 

We pray Thee, while we dwell below, 
Preserve us from our ghostly foe ; 
Nor let his wiles victorious be 
O'er them that are redeemed by Thee. 
O Lord of all, with us abide 
In this our joyful Easter-tide ; 
From every weapon death can wield 
Thine own redeemed for ever shield. 
All praise be Thine, O risen Lord, 
From death to endless life restored ; 
All to G-od the Father be 
And Holy Ghost eternally. Amen.

Thine too by right, and ours by grace, 

LORD, iu Thy Name Thy servants plead 
And Thou hust sworn to hear ; 
Thine is the harvest. Thine the seed, 

The fresh and fading year. 
Our hope, when autumn winds blew wild, 

We trusted, Lord, with Thee; 
And still, now spring has on us smiled, 

We wait on Thy decree. 
The former and the latter rain, 

The summer sun and air, 
The green ear, and the golden grain, 

All Thine, are ours by prayer. 

The wondrous growth unseen, 
The hopes that soothe, the fears that brace, 

The love that shines serene. 
So grant the precious things brought forth 

By sun and moOD below, 
That Thee in Thy new heaven and earth 

We never may forego. 
To Father, Son, and Holt Ghost, 

The God Whom we adore, 
Be glory, as it was, is now,

To realms beyond the skies ; 
And round Thy throne unceasingly 

The songs of praise arise ; 
But we are lingering here, 

With sin and care oppressed ; 
Loud, send Thy promised Comforter, 
And lead us to our rest. 

Thou art gone up on high ; 

But Thou didst first come down, 
Through earth's most bitter misery 

To p iss unto Thy crown ; 
And girt with griefs and fears 

Our onward course must be ; 
But only let this path of tears 

Lead us at last to Thee.

Attendant in Thy train.

Thy blessed unction from above 
Is comfort, life, and fire of love ; 
Enable with perpetual light 
The dulness of our blinded sight : 

Anoint and cheer our soiled face 
With the abundance of Thy grace : 
Keep far our foes, give peace at home ; 
Where Thou art guide, no ill can come. 
Teach us to know the Fathkk, Son, 
And Tiif.e, of Both, to be but One; 
That, through the ages all along, 
This may be our endless song :

" And when the day of Pentecost was 

A hove the starry spheres, 

ii. To where He was before, 
Christ had gone up, the Father's gift 

Upon the Church to pour. 

At length had fully come, 

On mystic circle borne 
Of seven times seven revolving days, 

The Pentecostal morn ; 

When, as the Apostles knelt 

At the third hour in prayer, 
A sudden rushing sound proclaimed 

That God Himself was there. 

Forthwith a tongue of fire 

Is seen on every brow, 
Each heart receives the Father's light, 

The Word's enkindling glow ; 

The Holy Ghost on all 

Is mightily outpoured, 

-| r 

fully come, they were all with one accord in 
one place. 1 ' 

Who straight in divers tongues declare 

The wonders of the Lord. 

While strangers of all climes 

Flock round from far and near, 
And their own tongue, wherever born, 

All with amazement hear. 

But Judah, faithless still, 

Denies the Hand Divine ; 
And, mocking, jeers the saints of Christ, 

As full of new-made wine. 

Till Peter in the midst, 

By Joel's ancient word 
Rebukes their unbelief, and wins 

Three thousand to the Lord. 

The Father and the Son 

And Spirit we adore ; 
O may the Spirit's gifts be poured 

On us for evermore. Amen. 

Hymn 130. 

'And suddenly there came a sound from 

WHEN God of old came down from 

In power and wrath He came ; 
Before His feet the clouds were riven, 

Half darkness and half flame : 
But when He came the second time, 

He came in power and love ; 
Softer than gale at morning prime 

Hovered His holy dove. 
The fires, that rushed on Sinai down 

In sudden torrents dread, 
Now gently light, a glorious crown, 

On every sainted head. 
And as on Israel's awe-struck ear 

The voice exceeding loud, 

heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind." 

The trump, that angels quake to hear, 

Thrill'dfrom the deep, dark cloud: 
So, when the Spirit of our God 

Came down His flock to find, 
A voice from heaven was heard abroad, 

A rushing, mighty wind. 
It fills the Church of God j It fills 

The sinful worid around ; 
Only fn Stubborn hearts and wills 

No place for It is found. 
Come Lord, come Wisdom, Love, and 

Open our ears to hear; 
Let us not miss th' accepted hour 

Save, Lord, by love or fear. Amen.

BRIEF life is here our portion ; 
Brief sorrow, short-lived care ; 
The life that knows no ending, 
The tearless life, is there. 

O happy retribution 1 

Short toil, eternal rest ; 
For mortals and for sinners 

A mansion with the blest. 

And now we fight the battle, 

But then shall wear the crown 
Of full and everlasting 

And passionless renown ; 

And now we watch and struggle, 

And now we live in hope, 
And Sion in her anguish 

With Babylon must cope ; 

But He Whom now we trust in 

Shall then be seen and known, 
And they that know and see Him 

Shall have Him for their own. 

The morning shall awaken, 

The shadow shall decay, 
And each true-hearted servant 

Shall shine as doth the day ;

It fills the heart with ecstacy, [high! 
That God, the Son of God, should take 
Our mortal form for mortals' sake,

Of higher or of lower place, 
But wore the robe of human frame 
Himself, and to this lost world came. 
Nor willed He only to appear; 
His pleasure was to tarry here ; 
And GoD-and-MAX with man would be 
The space of thirty years and three.

His holy fast, and hungered sore ; 
For us temptation sharp He knew ; 
For us the tempter overthrew. 

For us He prayed, for us He taught, 
For us His daily works He wrought, 
By words, and signs, and actions, thus 
Still seeking not Himself, but us. 
For us to wicked men betrayed, 
Scourged, mocked, in purple robe arrayed, 
He bore the shameful Cross and death ; 
For us at length gave up His breath. 
For us He rose from death again, 
For us He went on*high to reign, 
For us He sent His Spirit here 
To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer. 
To Him Whose boundless love has won 
Salvation for us through His Son, 
To God the Father, glory be,

OH what, if we are Christ's, 
Is earthly shame or loss ? 
Bright shall the crown of glory be 

Winn we have borne the Cross.

Bitter the cup of woe, 
When martyred saints, baptized in blood, 

Christ's sufferings shared below : 

Bright is their glory no\r, 

Boundless their joy above, 
"Where on the bosom of their God 

They rest in perfect love. 

Lord, may that grace be ours, 
Like them in faith to bear 

All that of sorrow, grief, or pain 
May be our portion here ; 
Enough if Thou at last 
The word of blessing give, 

And let us rest beneath Thy feet, 
Where saints and angels live.

Whom heaven and earth adore; 

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

' Thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins.' 1 

CONQUERING kings their titles take 
From the foes their captive make : 
Jesus, by a nobler deed, 
From the thousands He hath freed. 

Yes : none other name is given 
Unto mortals under heaven, 
Which can make the dead arise, 
And exalt them to the skies. 

That which Christ so hardly -wrought, 
That which He so dearly bought, 
That salvation, mortals, say, 
Will ye madly cast away ? 

Rather gladly for that Name 
Bear the cross, endure the shame ; 
Joyfully for Him to die 
Is not death but victory. 

Jesu, Who dost condescend 
To be called the sinner's Friend, 
Hear us as to Thee we pray, 
Glorying in Thy Name to-day. 

Glory to the Fatiiee be,

Part of the host have crossed the flood, 

And part are crossing now.

There pass some spirits blest ; 
While others to the margin come, 

Waiting their call to rest.

LORD, as to Thy dear Cross we flee, 
And plead to be forgiven, 
So let Thy life our pattern be, 

And form our souls for heaven. 
Help us, through good report and ill, 

Our daily cross to bear ; 
Like Thee, to do onr Father's will, 

Our brethren's griefs to share. 
Let grace our selfishness expel, 

Our earthliness refine ; 

And kindness in our bosoms dwell, 

As free and true as Thine. 
If joy shall at Thy bidding fly, 

And griefs dark day come on, 
We in our turn would meekly cry, 

"Father, Thy wili be done. 1 ' 
Kept peaceful in the midst of strife, 

Forgiving and forgiven ; 
O may we lead the pilgrim's life. 

And follow Thee to heaven. Amea.

"The washing of regeneration." 

JfVIS done ; that new and heavenly hirth

And cleanses from the guilt of sin 
The souls whom Jesus died to win. 

'Tis done; the Cross upon the brow 
Is marked for weal or sorrow now ; 
To shine wilh heavenly lustre bright, 
Or burn in everlasting night. 
O ye who brought that babe to-day 
Within a Saviour's arms to lay, 
Watch well and guard with careful eye 
The heir of immortality. 

Teach it to know a Father's love, 
And seek for happiness above, 
To Christ its heart and treasure give, 
And in the Spirit ever live. 

That so before the judgment-seat 
In joy and triumph ye may meet ; 
The battle fought, the struggle o'er, 
The kingdom yours for evermore. 

Praise Gon from Whom all hlessings flow, 
Praise Him, all creatures here below ; 
Praise Him above, angelic host ; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

We thank Thee for the ripened grain; 
For crops safe carried, sent to cheer 
Thy servants through another year ;

Glad from its wintry grave it springs, 
Fresh garnished by the King of Kings : 
So, Loud, to those who sleep in Thee 
Shall new and glorious bodies be. 

Nor vainly of Thy Word we ask 
A lesson from the reaper's task : 
So shall Thine angels issue forth ; 
The tares be burnt ; the just of earth, 
To wind and storm exposed no more, 
Be gathered to their Father's store. 

Daily. O Lord, our prayers be said, 
As Thou hast taught, for daily bread; 
But not alone our bodies feed, 
Supply our fainting spirits' need ; 
O Bread of Life, from day to day 
Be Thou their Comfort, Food, and Stay!

It bends the haughty thought.

Before Thy Fare Thy way to show, 
And shine, as with the day-star's gleam,

For ever and for evermore. Amen.

" Repent ye, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." 

LO ! from the desert homes, 
Where he hath hid so long, 
The new Eiias comes, 
In sternest wisdom strong; 
The voice that cries 
Of Christ from high, 
And judgment nigh 
From opening skies. 
Your God e'en now doth stand 

At heaven's opening door, 
llis fan is in His hand, 
And lie will purge His floor; 
The wheat He claims 
And with Him stows, 
The chaff He throws 
To quenchless flames. 
Ye haughty mountains, how 
Your sky-aspiring heads: 
Ye valleys, hiding low, 

Lift up your gentle meads ; 

Make His way plain 
Your King before, 
For evermore 
He comes to reign. 
May thy dread voice around, 

Thou harbinger of Light, 
On our dull ears still sound, 
Lest here we sleep in night, 
Till judgment come, 
And on our path 
Shall burst the wrath, 
And deathless doom. 
O Gon, with love's sweet might, 

Who dost anoint and arm 
Thy soldiers for the fight 
With grace that shields from harm, 
Thrice Blessed Three, 
Heaven's endless days 
Shall sing Thy praise 
Eternally. Amen.

11 There was war in heaven ; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and 
the dragon fought and his angels." 

(IHBIST, in highest heaven enthroned, 
) Equal of the Father's might, 
By pure spirits, trembling, owned, 

God of God, and Light of Light, 
Thee 'mid Angel hosts we sing, 
Thee their Maker and their King I 
All who circling round adore Thee, 

All who bow before Thy Throne, 
Burn with flaming zeal before Thee, 

Thy behests to carry down ; 
To and fro, 'twixt earth and heaven, 
Speed they each on errands given. 
First of all those legions glorious 

Michael waves his sword of flame, 
"Who of old in war victorious 

Did the Dragon's fierceness tame ; 

Who with might invincible 
Thrust the rebel down to hell. 

They to aid the sick and dying 
Called from heaven do swiftly fly, 

Grace divine and strength supplying 
In their mortal agony ; 

Souls released from bondage here 

They to Paradise do bear. 

To the Father praise be given 
By the unfallen angel-host, 

Who in His great war have striven 
With the legions of the lost ; 

Equal praise in highest heaven 

To the Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Worship His dread sovereignty.

Cherubim on fourfold wing,

Ranks of Might that never cowers. 
Angel hosts His word fulfil, 
Puling nature by His will ; 
Round His throne Archangels pour 
Songs of praise for evermore. 
Yet on man they joy to wait, 
All that bright celestial state, 

ye servants of His that do His pleasure." 
For true Man their Lord they see, 
Christ, the Incarnate Dkity. 
On the Throne our Lord Who died 
Sits in manhood glorified, 
Where His people faint below 
Angels count it joy to go. 
O the depths of joy divine 
Thrilling through those orders nine, 
When the lost are found again. 
When the banished come to reign. 
Now in faith, in hope, in love, 
We will join the choirs above, 
Praising, with the heavenly host,

They come from realms of peace above, 
From homes of never-fading light, 
From blissful mansions ever bright.

Have sanctified frail nature's fears, 
To earth in bitter sorrow weighed 
Thou didst not scorn Thine Angel's aid. 
An Angel guard to us supply, 
When on the bed of death we lie ; 
And by Thine own Almighty power 
O shield us in the last dread hour.

And God the Spirit, Three in One, 
From all above and all below

4 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the 
twelve Apostles of the Lamb." 

THE eternal gifts of Christ the King, 
The Apostles' glory, let us sing ; 
And all, with hearts of gladness, raise 
Due hymns of thankful love and praise. 

For they the Churches' princes are, 
Triumphant leaders in the war, 
In heavenly courts a warrior band, 
True lights to lighten every land. 

Theirs is the steadfast faith of saints, 
And hope that never yields nor faints, 
And love of Christ in perfect glow, 
That lays the prince of this world low. 

In them the Father's glory shone, 
In them the will of God the Soy, 
In them exults the Holy Ghost, 
Through them rejoice the heavenly host. 

To Thee, Redeemer, now we cry, 
That Thou wouldst join to them on high 
Thy servants, who this grace implore, 
For ever and for evermore. Amen.

To frail earthen vessels

Though full of Thy light, 
And at Thy decree 

Are broken and gone ; 
Thence, brightly appeareth

As through the clouds riven 

The lightnings have shone. 

Like clouds they are borne 

To do Thy greal will, 
And Bwift as the winds 

About the world go;

Their spirits doth fill, 
They thunder, they lighten, 

The waters o'erflow.

" Christ Jksus the Lord;* 1 
Then Satan doth fear, 

His citadels fall : 
As when the dread trumpets 

Went forth at Thy word, 
And one long blast shattered 

The Canaanite's wall. 

O loud be their trump, 

And stirring their sound, 
To rouse us, () Lord, 

From slumber of sin ; 
The lights Thou hast kindled 

In darkness around, 
Oh, may they illumine 

Our spirits within.

Not by art of human word, 
Preaching but the Cross of shame 
Kebel hearts for Christ ye tame.

Groaned in Satan's deadly chain,

4 Who can find a virtuous woman ? for her price is above rubies : the heart of her 
husband doth safely trust in her." 

HOW blest the matron, who, endued 
With holy zeal and fortitude, 
Has won through grace a saintly fame, 
And owns a dear and honoured name. 
Such holy love inflamed her breast 
She would not seek on earth her rest, 
But, strong in faith and patience, trod 
The narrow way that leads to God. 
She learned, through fasting, to control 
The flesh that weigheth down the soul, 

And then by prayer's sweet food sustained 
To seek the joys she now has gained. 
O Christ, from Whom all virtue springs, 
Who only doest wondrous things, 
To Thee, the King of Saints, we pray, 
Accept and bless Thy flock to-day.

The triumphs by His martyrs won. 
Since they wore faithful to the list, 
Their holy st r u ggles now are past; 
The bitterness of death is o'er, 
And theirs is blisfl for evermore.

And cruel beasts their members tear;

O let us strive like them to win 
Our freedom from the bonds cf sin. 
O Saviour! may our portion be 
With those who gave themselves to Thee, 
Through all eternity to ring 
All praise to Thee, the Martyrs' King. 
All praise to GrOD the FATHKB be, 
All praise, Eternal Son, to Thee,

One fellowship of love.

4 The Lord shall be thine everlasting Light." 

THE radiant morn hath passed away, 
And spent too soon her golden store ; 
The shadows of departing day 
Creep on once more. 

Our life is but a fading dawn, 
Its glorious noon how quickly past ; 
Lead us, O Cubist, when all is gone, 
Safe home at last. 

Oh, by Thy soul-inspiring grace 
Uplift our hearts to realms on high ; 
Help us to look to that bright place 
Beyond the sky ; 

"Where light, and love, and joy, and peace 
In undivided empire reign. 
And thronging angi U never cease 
Their deathless strain ; 

"Where saints are clothed in spotless white, 
Ami evening shadows never fall, 
Where Thou, Eternal Light of Light, 
Art Lokd of all. Amen.

" And at even, when the sun did set, they 
and all that were possessed with devils, 
at the door." 

AT even ere the sun was set, 
The sick O Lord, around Thee lay ; 
Oh, in what divers pains they met ! 
Oh, with what joy they went away ! 
Once more 'tis eventide, and we 
Oppressed with various ills draw near : 
What if Thy form we cannot see ? 
We know and feel that Thou art here. 
O Saviour Christ, our woes dispel ; 
For some are sick, and some are sad, 
And some have never loved Thee well, 
And some have lost the love they had ; 
And some have found the world is vain, 
Yet from the world they break not free ; 

brought unto Him all that were diseased, 
And all the city was gathered together 

And some have friends who give them pain, 
Yet have not sought a friend in Thee ; 
And none, O Lord, have perfect rest, 
For none are wholly free from sin ; 
And they, who fain would serve Thee best, 
Are conscious most of wrong within. 
O Saviour Christ, Thou too art Man ; 
Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried ; 
Thy kind but searching glance can scan 
The very wounds that shame would hide ; 
The touch has still its ancient power ; 
No word from Thee can fruitless fall ; 
Hear in this solemn evening hour, 
And in Thy mercy heal us all. Amen.

SAVIOUR, again to Thy dear Name we raise 
With one accord our parting hymn of praise ; 
We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word cf peace. 

Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way ; 
With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day ; 
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from sham*, 
That in this house have called upon Thy Name. 

Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming night, 
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light ; 
From harm and danger keep Thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to Thee. 

Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly life, 
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife; 
Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, 
Call us, O Loud, to Thine eternal peace. Amen.

"O God, Thou 

AND now the wants are told, that brought: 
Thy children to Thy knee ; 
Here lingering still, we ask for naught, 

But simply worship Thee. 
The hope of heaven's eternal day 

Absorbs not all the heart 
That gives Thee glory, love, and praise, 

For being what Thou art. 
For Thou art God, the One, the Same, 

O'er all things high and bright; 
And round us, when we speak Thy Name, 

There spreads a heaven of light. 
O wondrous peace, in thought to dwell 

On excellence divine ; 

art my God." 
To know that naught in man can tell 

How fair Thy beauties shine. 
O Thou, above all blessing blest, 

O'er thanks exalted far, 
Thy very greatness is a rest 

To weaklings as we are ; 
For when we feel the praise of Thee 

A task beyond our powers, 
We say, M A perfect God is He, 

And' He is fully ours." 
All glory to the Fatheb be, 

All glory to the Son, 
All glory, 'Holy Ghost, to Thee, 

While endless ages run. Amen.

Let there be light to-day ; 
O Day-spring, rise upon our night, 

And chase its gloom away. 

This is the day of rest : 

Our failing strength renew I 
On weary brain ami troubled breast 

Shed Thou Thy freshening dew. 

This is the day of peace : 

Thy peace our spirits fill ; 

on the Lord's day." 
Bid Thou the blasts of discord cease, 

The waves of strife be still. 

This is the day of prayer : 

Let earth to heaven draw near: 
Lift up our hearts to seek Thee there; 

Come down to meet us here. 

This is the first of days: 

Bend forth Thy quickening breath, 
And wake dead lOOifl to love and praise, 

Vanquisher of death ! Amen.

•' Upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together." 

ODAY of rest and gladness, 
O day of joy and light, 
O balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright ; 
On thee the high and lowly 
Before th' eternal Throne 
Sing Holy, Holy, Holy, 
To the great Three in One. 

On thee, at the creation, 

The light first had its birth ; 
On thee for our salvation 

Christ rose from depths of earth ; 
On thee; our Lord victorious 

The Spirit sent from heaven; 
And tli us on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

Thou art a cooling fountain 
In life's dry dreary sand ; 

From thee, like Pisguh's mountain, 
We view our promised land ; 

A day of sweet refection, 

A day of holy love, 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things abore. 

To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly Manna fall», 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls, 
Where Gospel-light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams.

the glory of God and Jebtjb standing on the right liaud of God." 

1TESTERDAY, with exultation, 

X Joined the world in celebration 
Of her promised Saviours birth ; 
Yesterday the angel-nation 
Poured the strains of jubilation 
O'er the Monarch born on earth; 

Bnt to-day o'er death victorious, 
By his faith and actions glorious, 

By his miracles renowned, 
Bee the Deacon triumph gaining, 
'Midst the faithless faith sustaining, 

First of holy martyrs found. 

Onward, champion, falter never, 
Sure of sure reward for ever, 

Holy Stephen, persevere ; 
Perjured witnesses confounding, 
j synagogue astounding 

By thy doctrine true and clear. 

Thine own Witness is in heaven, 
True and Faithful, to thee given. 

Witness of thy blanielessness : 
By Thy name a Crown implying, 
lieel ii is thou shonldsl be dying 

For the Crown of righteousness. 

For the Crown that fadeth never 
Bear the torturer's brief endeavour 

Victory wails to end the strife: 
Dcalh shall be thy lift's beginning, 
And life's losing be the winning 

Of the true and better life. 

Filled with Gon's most Holy Sprcrr 
See the heaven thou sbalt inherit, 

Stephen, gaze into the skies: 
There Gon's glory steadfast viewing, 
Thence thy victor-strength renewing, 

Pant for thy eternal prize. 

See, as Jewish foes invade thee, 
See how JBBUS stands to aid thee, 

Stands at (ton's right hand on hish: 
Tell how opened heaven is shown thee. 
Tell how Jesus waits to own thee, 

Tell it with thy latest cry. 

As the dying Martyr kneeleth, 
For his murderers he appealeth, 

For their madness grieving sore ; 
Then in Christ he Bleepeth Bweetly, 
And with Christ be reignetfa m* tly. 

Martyr rlrst-lruits, evermore. Amen.

CHRISTIAN, dost thou see them 
On the holy ground, 
How the troops of Midian 

Prowl and prowl around? 
Christian, up and smite them, 

Counting train but loss ; 
Smite them by the merit 
Of the holy Cross. 

Christian, dost Thou fed them, 

How they work within, 
Striving, tempting, luring, 

Goading into sin ? 
Christian, neve/ tremble ; 

Never be down-cast ;

Christian, dost thou hear them, 

How they speak thee fair ?

Always watch and prayer?" 
Christian, answer boldly, 

44 While I breathe I pray: " 
Peace shall follow battle, 

Night shall end in day.

Hymn 286. 



" In Whom we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins." 

TEARY of earth and laden with my sin, 
I look at heaven and long to enter in, 
But there no evil thing may find a home: 
And yet I hear a voice that bids me " Come. 1 ' 

So vile I am, how dare I hope to stand 

In the pure glory of that holy land ? 

Before the whiteness of that Throne appear ? 

Yet there are Hands stretched out to draw me near. 

The while I fain would tread the heavenly way, 
Evil is ever with me day by day ; 
Yet on mine ears the gracious tidings fall, 
"Repent, confess, thou shalt be loosed from all.'* 

It is the voice of Jesus that I hear, 

His are the Hands stretched out to draw me near, 

And His the Blood that can for all atone, 

And set me faultless there before the Throne. 

'Twas He Who found me on the deathly wild, 
And made me heir of heaven, the Father's child, 
And day by day, whereby my soul may live, 
Gives me His grace of pardon, and will give. 

O great Absolver, grant my soul may wear 
The lowliest garb of penitence and prayer, 
That in the Father's courts my glorious dress 
May be the garment of Thy righteousness. 

Yea, Thou wilt answer for me, Righteous Lord : 
Thine all the merits, mine the great reward ; 
Thine the sharp thorns, and mine the golden crown. 
Mine the life won, and Thine the life laid down. 

Naught can I bring, dear Lord, for all I owe, 
Yet let my full heart what it can bestow ; 
Like Mary's gift let my devotion prove, 
Forgiven greatly, how I greatly love. Amen. 

Hymn 287. 


11 "When he thought thereon, he -wept. 11 

OJESU CHRIST, if aught there be 
That, more than all beside, 
In ever-painful memory 

Must in my heart abide, 
It is that deep ingratitude 

Which I to Thee have shown, 
Who didst for me in tears and Blood 

Upon the Cross atone. 
Alas, how with my actions all 

Has this defect entwined ; 
How has it poisoned with its gall 

My spirit, heart, and mind I 

Alas, through this, how many a gem 

I"ve rudely cast away, 
That might have formed my diadem 

In everlasting day ! 
Yet though the time be past and gone, 

Though little more remains, 
Though naught is all that can be done 

E'en with my utmost pains ; 
Still will I strive, O Saviour mine, 

To do what in me lies ; 
For never did Thy glance divine 

A contrite heart despise. Amen.

The Passover of God.

From earth unto the sky,

With hymns of victory.

The Lord in rays eternal 

Of resurrection-light ; 
And, listening to His accents, 

May hear so calm and plain 
His own " All hail," and, hearing, 

May raise the victor strain. 

Now let the heavens be joyful, 

And earth her song begin, 
The round world keep high triumph, 

And all that is therein ; 
Let all tilings seen and unseen 

Their notes of gladness blend, 
For Christ the Loud is risen, 

Our Joy that hath no end. Amen,

See the King in royal state 
Riding on the clouds His chariot 

To His heavenly palace gate ; 
nark, the choirs of angel voices 

Joyful Alleluias sing, 
And the portals high are lifted 
To receive their heavenly King. 

Who is this that comes in glory, 

With the trump of jubilee? 
Lord of battles, Gon of armies, 

He has gained the victory ; 
He Who on the Cross did suffer, 

He Who from the grave arose, 
He has vanquished sin and Satan, 

He by death has spoiled His foes. 

While He lifts His hands in blessing, 

He is parted from His friends ; 
While their eager eyes behold Him, 

He upon the clouds ascends; 
lie Who walked with Gon, and pleased Him, 

Preaching truth and doom to come, 
He, our Enoch, is translated 

To His everlasting home. 

Now our heavenly Aaron enters, 

With His Blood, within the veil; 
Joshua now is come to Canaan, 

And the kings before Him quail; 
Now He plants the tribes of Israel 

In their promised resting-place ; 
Now our great Elijah offers 

Double portion of His grace. 
He has raised our human nature 

In the clouds to God's right hand ; 
There we sit in heavenly places, 

There with Him in glory stand : 
Jesus reigns, adored by angels ; 

Man with God is on the throne ;

With our youth renewed like eagles, 

Flocking round our Heavenly King, 
Caught up on the clouds of heaven, 

And may meet Him in the air, 
Rise to realms where He is reigning, 

And may reign for ever there.

14 Work your work berimes, and in His time He will give you your reward. 1 

THE world is very evil, 
The times are waxing late, 
Be sober and keep vigil, 

The Judge is at the gate ; 
The Judge Who comes in mercy, 

The Judge Who comes with might, 
Who conies to end the evil, 
Who comes to crown the right. 

Arise, arise, good Christian, 

Let right to wrong succeed ; 
Let penitential sorrow 

To heavenly gladness lead, 
To light that has no evening, 

That knows nor moon nor sun, 
The light so new and golden, 

The light that is but one. 

O Home of fadeless splendour, 

Of flowers that fear no thorn, 
Where they shall dwell as children 

Who here as exiles mourn ; 
'Midst power that knows no limit, 

Where wisdom has no bound, 
The Beatific Vision 

Shall glad the Saints around. 

O happy, holy portion, 

Refection for the blest, 
True vision of true beauty, 

True cure of the distrest : 
Strive, man, to win that glory; 

Toil, man, to gain thai light; 
Send hope before to grasp it, 

Till hope be lost in sight. 

O sweet and blessed country, 

The Home of Goi»'s elect I 
O sweet and blessed country 

That eager hearts expect I 
Jesd, in mercy bring us 

To that dear land of rest ; 
Who art, with God the Fathm, 

And Spirit, ever blest. Amen.

" Come to me," saith One, " and coming 

Be at rest ! " 
Hath He marks to lead me to Him,

And His Side." 
Hath He Diadem as Monarch 

That His Brow adorns ? 
"Yea, a Crown, in very surety, 
But of thorns. 11 

If I find Him, if I follow, 

What His guerdon here ? 
11 Many a sorrow, many a labour, 
Many a tear." 

If I still hold closely to Him, 

What hath He at last? 
" Sorrow vanquished, labour ended, 
Jordan past.' 1 

If I ask Him to receive me, 

Will He say me nay ?

Pass away."

overcame and am set down with My Fatiier in His throne. 1 '

And heaven's eternal Light. 
The Joy of all who dwell above, 

The joy of all below, 
To whom He manifests His love, 

And grants His Name to know. 

To them the Cross, with all its shame, 

With all its grace, is given : 
Their name an everlasting name, 

Their joy the joy of heaven. 
They suffer with their Loud below, 

They reign with Him above, 
Their profit and their joy to know 

The mystery of His love. 
The Cross lie bore is life and health, 

Though shame and death to Him ; 
His people's hope, His people's wealth, 

Their everlasting theme. Amen.

On Him alone we build ; 
With His true saints above

Our hopes we place 
Of present grace

These hallowed courts shall ring, 
Our voices we will raise 
The Three in One to sing ; 
And thus proclaim 
In joyful song, 
Both loud and long, 
That glorious Name. 

Here, gracious God, do Thou 

For evermore draw nigh ; 
Accept each faithful vow, 

And mark each suppliant sigh ; 
In copious shower 
On all who pray 
Each holy day 
Thy blessings pour. 

Here may we gain from heaven 
The grace whirh ire implore; 
And may that grace, once given, 
Be with us evermore, 
Until that day 

When all the blest 
To endless rest 
Are called away. Araen.

1 And on His Head were many crowns." 

CROWN Him with many crowns, 
Tlie Lamb upon His throne ; 
Hark, how the- heavenly anthem drowns 
All music but its own : 
Awake, my soul, and sing 
Of Him Who died for thee, 
And hail Him as thy matchless King 
Through all eternity. 

Crown Him the Virgin's Son, 

The God Incarnate born, 
Whose arm those crimson trophies won 

Which now His Brow adorn: 

Frail of the mystic Rose, 

As of that Rose the Bfcera; 
The Root whence mercy ever flows, 
• The Bahe of Bethlehem. 

Crown Him the Lord of Rove: 

Behold His Hands and Side, 
Bich Wounds yet visible above 

In beauty glorified : 

No angel in the sky 
Can fully bear that sight, 
But downward bends his burning eye 
At mysteries so bright. 

Crown Him the Loud of Peace: 
Whose power a sceptre sways 

From pole to pole, that wars may cease, 
And all be prayer and praise : 
His reign shall know no end, 
And round His pierced Feet 

Fair flowers of Paradise extend 
Their fragrance ever sweet. 

Crown Him the Lord of years, 
The Potentate of time, 

Creator of the rolling spheres, 
Ineffably sublime. 

All hail, Redeemer, hail ! 

For Thou has! died forme; 
Thy praise shall never, never fail 
Throughout eternity. Amen

" In the beginning was the W02D, and the Woed was with God, and the Word 
was God. All things were made by Him. 11 

JESUS is God: the solid earth, 
The ocean broad and bright, 
The countless stars, like golden dust, 

That strew the skies at night. 
The wheeling storm, the dreadful fire, 

The plcasank wholesome air, 
The summer's sun, the winter's frost, 
llis own crcatioua were. 

Jesus is God ; the glorious bands 

Of golden angels sing 
Songs of adoring praise to Him, 

Their Maker and their King. 
He was true God in Bethlehem's crib, 

On Calvary's Cross true God, 
He Who in heaven eternal reigned 

In time on earth abode. 

Jf.sus is God: let sorrow come, 

And pain, and every iil. 
All are worth while, for all are means

Worth while a thousand years of woo 

To speak one little word,

" He is the Head of the Body, the Church." 

THE Church's one foundation 
Is Jesus Christ her Lord; 
She is His new creation 

By water and the Word: 
From heaven lie came and sought her 

To be His holy Bride, 
With His own Blood He bought her 
And for her life He died. 

Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er all the earth, 
Her charter of salvation 

One Lord, one Faith, one Birth ; 
One Holy Name she blesses, 

Partakes one Holy Food, 
And to one hope, she presses 

With every grace endued. 

Though with a scornful wonder 

Men seo her sore opprest, 
By schisms rent asunder, 

By heresios distrost, 

Yet saints their watch are keeping. 
Their cry goes up, " How long?* 

And soon the night of weeping 
Shall be the morn of song. 

Mid toil, and tribulation, 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace for evermore ; 
Till with the vision glorious 

Her longing eyes are blest, 
And the great Church victorious 

Shall be the Church at rest. 

Yet she on earth hath union 

With God the Three in Oni, 
And mystic sweet communion 

With those whose rest is won: 
O happy ones and holy 1 

Lord, give us grace that we 
Like them, the meek and lowly, 

On high may dwell with Thee. Amen,

These are Thy ministers, these dost Thou own,

These are Thy messengers, these dost Thou send.

These keep the guard amidst Salem's dear bowers ; 
Thrones, Principalities, Virtues, and Powers; 
Where with the Living Ones, mystical Four, 
Cherubim, Seraphim bow and adore. 

Then, when the earth was first poised in mid space, 
Then, when the planets first sped on their race, 
Then, when were ended the six days' employ 
Then all the sons of God shouted for joy. 

Still let them succour us ; still let them fight, 
LoBD of angelic hosts, buttling for right ; 
Till, where their anthems they ceaseh sslv pour, 
We with the Angels may bow and adore. A men.

things which Gon hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath 
revealed them unto us by His Spirit.' 1 

LIGHT'S abode, Celestial Salem, 
Vision whence true peace doth spring, 
Brighter than the heart can fancy, 

Mansion of the Highest King ; 
O how glorious are the praises 
Which of thee the prophets sing ! 

There for ever and for ever 

Alleluia is out-poured, 
For unending, for unbroken 

Is the feast-day of the Lord ; 
All is pure, and all is holy 

That within thy walls is stored. 

There no cloud nor passing vapour 
Dims the brightness of the air ; 

Endless noon-day. glorious noon-day, 
From the Sun of suns is there ; 

There no night brings rest from labour, 
For unknown are toil and care. 

O how glorious and resplendent, 
Fragile body, shalt thou be, 

When endued with so much beauty, 
Full of health, and strong and free, 

Full of vigour, full of pleasure 
That shall last eternally! 

Now with gladness, now with courage 
Bear the burden on thee laid, 

That hereafter these thy labours 
May with endless gifts be paid, 

And in everlasting glory 
Thou with brightness be arrayed. 

Laud and honour to the Father, 
Laud and honour to the Sox, 

Laud and honour to the Spirit, 
Ever Three and ever One, 

Consnbstantial, Co-eternal 
While uuending ages run. Amen.

' Every day will I give thanks unto Thee, and praise Thy Name for ever and ever." 

CAVIOUR, Blessed Saviour, 
10 Listen whilst we sing, 
Hearts and voices raising 

Praises to our King. 
All we have we offer ; 

All we hope to he, 
Body, soul, and spirit, 

All we yield to Thee. 
Nearer, ever nearer, 

Cueist, we draw to Thee, 
Deep in adoration 

Bending low the knee : 
Thou for our redemption 

Cara'st on earth to die ; 
Thou, that wo might follow, 

Hast gone up on high. 

Great and ever greater 

Are Thy mercies here, 
True and everlasting 

Are the glories there, 
"Where no pain, or sorrow, 

Toil, or care is known, 
Whefe the angel-legions 

Circle round Thy throne. 
Dark and ever darker 

Was the wintry past, 
Now a ray of gladness 

O'er our path i- east ; 
Every day that passeth, 

Everv hour that flies, 
Tells of lore unfeigned, 

Love that never dies. 

Clearer still and clearer 

Dawns the light from heaven, 
In our sadness bringing 

News of sin forgiven ; 
Life has lost its shadows,

Leaving all behind us,

Finds its promised goal ;

GUIDE me, O Thou Great Redeemer, 
Pilgrim through this barren land ; 
I am weak, but Thou art mighty, 
Hold me with Thy powerful hand ; 

Bread of heaven, 
Feed me now and evermore. 

Open now the crystal Fountain, 

Whence the healing streams do flow; 
Let the fiery cloudy pillar 

Lead me all my journey through; 
Strong Deliverer, 

Be Thou still my Strength and Shield. 

When I tread the verge of Jordan, 

Bid my anxious fears subside : 
Death of death, and hell's Destruction, 

Land me safe on Canaan's side ; 
Songs of pral 

I will ever give to Thee, Amen.

"We must all appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ.' 

THOU Judge of quick and dead, 
Before Whose bar severe 
"With holy joy, or guilty dread, 
We all shall soon appear ; 

Our wakened souls prepare 
For that tremendous Day, 
And fill us now with watchful care, 
And stir us up to pray : 

To pray, and wait the hour, 
The awful hour unknown, 
When, robed in majesty and power, 
Thou shalt from heaven come down, 

The immortal Son of Man, 
To judge the human race, 
With all Thy Fathers dazzling train, 
With all Thy glorious grace. 

To sober earthly joys, 
To quicken holy fears, 
For ever let the Archangel's voice 
Be sounding in our ears ; 

The solemn midnight cry, 
" Ye dead, the Judge is come ! 
" Arise, and meet Him in the sky, 
" And meet your instant doom I " 

O may we thus be found, 
Obedient to His word, 
Attentive to the trumpet's sound, 
And looking for our Lord. 

O may we thus insure 
Our lot among the blest, 
And watch a moment, to secure 
An everlasting rest. Amen.

For I am very poor ; 
A stranger and a pilgrim, 
I have no earthly store ; 
I need the love of Jesus 

To cheer me on my way, 
To guide my doubting footsteps, 
To be my strength and stay.

I need a friend like Thee, 
A friend to soothe and pity, 

A friend to care for me : 
I need the Heart of Jesus 

To feel each anxious care, 
To tell my every trial, 

And all my sorrows share. 

I need Thee, Precious Jesu, 

I need Thee, day by day, 
To fill me with Thy fulness, 

To lead me on my way ; 
I need Thy Holy Spirit 

To teach me what I am, 
To show me more of Jesus, 

To point me to the Lamb. 

I need Thee, Precious Jesu, 

And hope to see Thee soon 
Encircled with the rainbow, 

And seated on Thy throne ; 
There, with Thy Blood-bought children, 

My joy shall ever be, 
To sing Thy praises, Jesu, 

To gaze, my Lord, on Thee. Amen.

" Let my supplication come before Thee ; deliver me, according to Thy Word." 

JESUS, Loud of life and glory, 
Bend from heaven Thy gracious ear ; 
While our waiting souls adore Thee, 
Friend of helpless sinners hear : 

By Thy mercy, 
O deliver us, good Lord. 

From the depths of nature's blindness, 
From the hardening power of sin, 

From all malice and unkindness, 
From the pride that lurks within, 

By Thy mercy, 
O deliver us, good Lord. 

When temptation sorely presses, 

In the day of Satan's power, 
In our times of deep distresses, 

In each dark and trying hour, 
By Thy mercy, 

O deliver us, good Lord. 

When the world around is smiling, 
In the time of wealth and ease, 

Earthly joys our hearts beguiling. 
In the day of health and peace, 

By Thy merey, 
O deliver us, good Lord. 

In the weary hours of sickness, 
In the times of grief and pain, 

When we feel our mortal weakness, 
When the creature's help is vain, 

By Thy mercy, 
deliver us, good Lord. 

In the solemn hour of dying, 
In the awful judgment day, 

May our souls, on Thee relying, 
Find Thee still our Hope and Stay: 

By Thy mercy, 
deliver us, good Lord. Amen.

"There remaineth a rest to the people of God." 

OWHAT the joy and the glory must he, 
Those endless Sabbaths the blessed ones see ; 
Crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest ; 
God shall be all and in all ever blest. 

What are the Monarch, His court, and His throne ? 
What are the peace, and the joy that they own ? 
O, that the blest ones, who in it have share, 
All that they feel could as fully declare. 

Truly Jerusalem name we that shore, 

"Vision of Peace, that brings joy evermore ; 

Wish and fulfilment can severed be ne'er, 

Nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. 

There, where no troubles distraction can bring, 
We the sweet anthems of Sion shall sing, 
While for Thy grace, Lord, their voices of praiso 
Thy blessed people eternally raise. 

There dawns no Sabbath, no Sabbath is o'er, 
Those Sabbath-keepers have one evermore ; 
One and unending is that triumph-song 
Which to the angels and us shall belong. 

Now in the meanwhile with hearts raised on high, 
We for that country must yearn and must sigh; 
Seeking Jerusalem, dear native land, 
Through our long exile on Babylon's strand. 

Low before Tlim with our praises we fall, 
Of Whom, and in Whom, and through Whom are all: 
Of Whom, the Father; and in Whom, the Son; 
Through Whom, the Spirit, with Them ever One. Amen.

11 His Face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light." 

IN days of old on Sinai 
The Lord Almigiity came, 
In majesty of terror, 

In thunder-cloud and flnme ; 
On Tabor, with the glory 

Of sunniest light for vest, 
The excellence of beauty 
In Jesus was expressed. 

All light created paled there, 

And did Him worship meet ; 
The sun itself adored Him, 

And bowed before His feet ; 
While Moses and Elias, 

Upon the holy Mount, 
The co-eternal glory 

Of Christ our God recount. 

O holy, wondrous vision ! 

But what when, this life past, 
The beauty of Mount Tabor 

Shall end in heaven at last? 
But what when all the glory 

Of uncreated light 
Shall be the promised guerdon 

Of them that win the fight ? Amen.

ONCE, only once, and once for all, 
His precious life He gave : 
Before the Cross our spirits fall, 
And own it strong to save. 

" One offering, single and complete," 
With lips and heart we say; 

But what He never can repeat 
He shows forth day by day.

Within tlie Holiest stood, 
And sprinkled ail the mercy-shrine 

Witt) sacrificial blood ; 

So He, Who once atonement wrought, 
Our Priest of endless power, 

Presents Himself for thos*e He bought 

In that dark noontide hour. 
His Manhood pleads where now It lives 

On heaven's eternal throne. 
And where in mystic rite He gives 

Its Presence to Ilia own. 

And so we shew Thy death, O Loud, 

Till Thou again appear,

And drink the holy Blood for you outpoured. 

Saved by that Body and that holy Blood, 
With souls refreshed, we render thanks to God. 

Salvation's Giver, Christ the Only Son, 

By His dear Cross and Blood the victory won. 

Offered was He for greatest and for least, 
Himself the Victim and Himself the Priest 

Victims wore offered by the law of old 
Which in a type this heavenly mystery told. 

He, Ransomer from death, and Light from shade, 
Now gives His holy grace His saints to aid. 

Approach ye then with faithful hearts sincere, 
And take the safeguard of salvation here. 

He, that in this world rules His saints and shields, 
To all believers life eternal yields ; 

With heavenly bread makes them that hunger whole. 
Gives living waters to the thirsting soul.

All nations at the Doom, is with us now. Amen.

Fruitful let Thy sorrows be ; 
By Thy pains and consolations 

Draw the Gentiles unto Thee : 
Of Thy Cross the wondrous story, 

Be it to the nations told ; 
Let them see Thee in Thy glory, 
And Thy mercy manifold. 

Far and wide, though all unknowing, 

Pants for Thee each mortal breast ; 
Human tears for Thee are flowing, 

Human hearts in Thee would rest : 
Thirsting, as for dews of even, 

As the new-mown grass for rain, 
Thee they seek, as Gon of heaven, 

Thee, as Man, for sinners slain.

Stretched the hand, and strained the sight, 
For Thy Spirit new creating,

ALMIGHTY God, Whose only Son 
O'er sin and death the triumph won, 
And ever lives to intercede 
For souls who Thy sweet mercy need ; 

In ITis dear Name to Thee we pray 
For all who err and go astray, 
For sinners wheresoe'er they be, 
Who do not serve and honour Thee. 

There are who never yet have heard 
The tidings of Thy blessed Word, 
But still in heathen darkness dwell, 
Without one thought of heaven or hell ; 

And some within Thy sacred Fold 
To holy things are dead and cold, 
And waste the precious hours of life 
In selfish ease, or toil, or strife : 

And many a quickened soul within 
There lurks the secret love of sin ; 
A wayward will, or anxious fears, 
Or lingering taint of bygone years : 

O give repentance true and deep 
To all Thy lost and wandering sheep, 
And kindle in their hearts the fire 
Of holy love and pure desire. 

That so from angol-hosts above 

May rise a sweeter song of love, 

And we, with all the blest, adore 

Thy Name, O God, for evermore. Amen.

TENDER Shepherd, Thou hast stilled 
Now Thy little lamb's brief weeping : 
Ah, how peaceful, pale, and mild, 
In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping, 
And no sigh of anguish sore 
Heaves that little bosom more. 

In this world of care and pain, 

Loud, Thou wouldst no longer leave it ; 
To the sunny, heavenly plain 

Thou dost now with joy receive it; 
Clothed in robes of spotless white 
Now it dwells with Thee in light. 

Ah, Loed Jesu, grant that we 

Where it lives may soon be living, 
And the lovely pastures see 
That its heavenly food nre giving ; 
Then the gain of death we prove, 
Though Thou take what most wo love.

1 The child Jesus." 

ONCE in royal David's City 
Stood a lowly cattle shed, 
"Where a mother laid her Baby, 

In a manger for His bed : 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Ciirist her little Child. 

He came down to earth from heaven 

Who is (ron and Lori> of all, 
And His shelter was a stable, 

And His cradle was a stall ; 
With the poor, and mean, and lowly, 
Lived on earth our Saviour Holy. 

And, through all His wondrous childhood, 
He would honour, and obey. 

Love, and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms He lay ; 
Christian children all must be 
^kld, obedient, good as He. 

For He is our childhood's Pattern, 
Day by day like us He grew, 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 
Tears and smiles like us He knew; 

And He feeleth for our sadness, 

And He shareth in our gladness. 

And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 

For that Child so dear and gentle 
Is our Lor.n in heaven above ; 

And He leads His children on 

To the place where He is gone. 

Not In that poor lowly stable, 
With the oxen standing by, 
We shall aee Him ; but in heaven, 

1 right hand on high ; 

When like stars His children crowned 
All in white shall wait around. Amen, 

Hymn 362, 

M While we were yet sinners, 

THERE is a green hill far away, 
Without a city wall, 
Where the dear Lord was crucified 

Who died to save us all. 
We may not know, we cannot tell 

What pains He had to bear, 
But we believe it was for us 

He hung and suffered there. 
He died that we might be forgiven, 

He died to make us good, 

i — r 

Christ died for us." 

That we might go at last to heaven, 

Saved by His precious Blood. 
There was no other good enough 

To pay the price of sin, 
He only could unlock the gate 

Of heaven, and let us in. 
O, dearly, dearly has He loved, 

And we must love Him too, 
And trust in His redeeming Blood, 

And try His works to do. Amen.

Nor born in any high estate ; 
What can we do for Jesu's sake 
Who is so high and good and great?

Laid down for Him their infant life, 
And martyrs brave and patient saints 
Have stood for Him in fire and strife.

Has much to do, without, within; 
A death to die. for JESU'S sake, 
A weary war to wage with sin. 

ence gladly to give of that little." 

When deep within our swelling hearts 
The thoughts of pride and anger rise, 
When bitter words are on our tongues 
And tears of passion in our eyes ; 

Then we may stay the angry blow, 
Then we may check the hasty word, 
Give gentle answers back again, 
And fight a battle for our Loed. 

With smiles of peace, and looks of lover 
Light in our dwellings we may make, 
Bid kind good humour brighten there. 
And do all still for Jesu's sake. 
There's not a child so small and weak 
But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise 
That he may do for Jesu's sake. AmeJ*^

Little ones are dear to Thee ; 
Gathered with Thine arms, and carried 

In Thy bosom may we be ;

From all want and danger free.

From Thy fold to go astray ;

May we walk the narrow way ; 
Thus direct us, and protect us, 

Lest we fall an easy prey. 

Cleanse our hearts from sinful folly 

In the stream Thy love supplied, 
Mingled stream of Blood and Water, 

Flowing from Thy wounded Side: 
And to heavenly pastures lead us 

Where Thine own still waters glide. 

Let Thy holy Word instruct us ; 

Fill our minds with heavenly light; 
Let Thy love and grace constrain us 

To approve whatever is right, 
Take Thine easy yoke, and wear it, 

And to prove Thy burden light. 

Taught to lisp the holy praises 

Which on earth Thy children sing, 
Both with lips and heart unfeigned 

May we our thank-offerings bring; 
Then, with all the .saint.; in glory, 

Join to praise our Loud and Kino. Amen.

It is a CmiiRT-like thing. 

And Ave believe Thy word, 

Though dim our faith may be ; 
WhateYr for Thine we do, O Lord, 

We do it onto Thee. 

All might, all praise, be Thine, 

Fathkr, Co-equal Son, 
And Spirit, Bond of love divine, 

While endless ages run. Amen.

Ye ought to remember the words of 
blessed to give 

T" ORD of glory, Who hast bought us 
j With Thy life-blood as the price, 
Never trrudginer for the lost ones 

That tremendous sacrifice, 
And with that hast freely given 

Blessings countless as the sand 
To the unthankful and the evil. 
With Thine own unsparing hand ; 

Grant us hearts, dear Loud, to yield Thee 

Gladly, freely of Thine own ; 
With the sunshine of Thy goodness 

Melt our thankless hearts of stone ; 
Till our eold and S"lfish natures. 

Warmed by Thee at length believe 
That more happy and more blessed 

^Tis to give than to receive. 

Wondrous honour hast Thou given 

To our humblest charity. 
In Thine own mysterious sentence 

"Ye have done it unto Me." 

the Lort> Jesus, how He said, It is more 
than to receive. 1 ' 

Can it be, O gracious M aster, 
Thou dost deign for alms to sue, 

Saying by Thy poor and needy 
" Give as I have given to you ?" 

Yes: the sorrow and the suffering, 

Which on every hand we see, 
Channels arc for tithes and offerings 

Due bv solemn right to Thee; 
Ri^ht of which we may not rob Thee, 

Debt we may not choose bat pay, 
Lest that Face of love and pity 

Turn from us another day. 

Lorn of dory, Who liast bought us 

With Thy life-Mood as the price, 
Never grudging for the lost ones 

That tremendous sacrifice, 
Give ns Faith, to trust Thee boldly, 

Hope, to stay our souls on Thee ; 
But oh ! best of all Thy grace* 

Give us Thine own Charitv. Amen.

ALL Creation groans and travails; 
Thou, God, shalt hear its groan; 
For of man and all creation 

Thou alike art Loud alone. 
Pity then Thy guiltless creatures,

For our sins it is they perish ; 

Let them profit by our prayer. 
Cast Thine eve of love and mercy 

On the misery of the land :

Call to mind, Sow of God' 
Those in Thine own Image fashioned: 

Ransomed with Thy precious blood : 

Hear and grant the supplications, 
Like a cloud of incense, borne 

Up toward Thy Seat of Mercy, 
From Thy people's hearts forlorn : 

For the widow, for the orphan. 

For the helpless, boneless poor : 
Helpless, hopeless, if Thou spare not 

Of their basket and their store. 
So — while these her earnest accents 

Day by day Thy church repeats, — 
That our sheep may bring forth thousand* 

And ten thousands in our streets; 

That our oxen, strong to labour, 

May not know nor fe:ir decay : 
That there be no more complaining, 

And the plague have passed away. 
And, at last, to all Thy servants, 

When earth's troubles shall be o'er,

SHALL we not love Thee, Mother dear, 
Whom J esus loves so well ? 
And in His Temple, ) r ear by year, 

Thy joy and glory tell ? 
Bound with the curse of sin and shame 

We helpless sinners lay, 
Until in tender love He came 

To bear the curse away. 
And thee He choose from whom to take 

True flesh His Flesh to be; 
In It to suffer for our sake, 

By It to make us free. 
Thy Babe He lay upon thy breast, 

To thee He cried for food ; 
Thy gentle nursing soothed to rest

O wondrous depth of grace Divine 

That He should bend so low ; 
And, Mary, O what joy was thine 

In His dear love to know : 
Joy to be Mother of the Loud ; 

And thine the truer bliss, 
In every thought, and deed, and word, 

To be for ever His.

IET our Choir new anthems raise 
j Wake the song of gladness ; 
Gon Himself to joy and praise 
Turns the martyrs' sadness : 
Bright the day that won their crown, 

Opened heaven's bright portal, 
As they laid the mortal down 
To put on th' immortal. 

Never flinched they from the flame, 

From the torture never ; 
Vain the foeman's sharpest aim, 

Satan's best endeavour: 
For by faith they saw the land 

Decked in all its glory, 
Where triumphant now they stand 

With the victor's story. 


Up and follow, Christian men ! 

Press through toil and sorrow ; 
Spurn the night of fear, and then. 

Oh, the glorious morrow ! 
Who will venture on the strife? 

Blest who first begin it ; 
Who will grasp the Land of Life? 

Warriors, up and win it 1 Amen.

JESU, for the beacon-light 
By Thy holy Doctors given, 
"When the mist of error's night 
Gathered o'er the path to heaven, 
For the witness that they bare 
To the truth they learned of Thee, 
For the glory that they share, 
Let our praise accepted be. 

In Jerusalem below 
They were workmen at Thy call, 
Each with one hand met the foe, 
With the other built the wall ; 
Watchmen on the mountain set, 
Scribes instructed in Thy Word, 
Fishers with the Gospel net 
Drawing souls to Thee their Loed. 

Like Thy learned sons of yore, 

Je8U, may Thy Pastors still 

Know and teach Thy sacred lore 

With brave heart and patient skill: 

In these latter days of strife 

Keep, O keep them true to Thee, 

Till beside the well of life 

Light iu Thine own light they see. Amen.

" The memory of the just is blessed.' 

SHEPHERD of the sheep, 
High Priest of things to come. 
Who didst in grace Thy servant keep, 

And take him sweetly home ; 

Accept our song of praise 

For all his holy care, 
His zeal unquenched, through length of days, 

The trials that he bare. 

His heart was Thine alone, 

From selfish longings free ; 
Thy throne the Cross, a cross his throne, 

His life was hid in Thee. 

Chief of Thy faithful band, 

He held himself the least ; 
Though Thy dread keys were in his hand, 

O everlasting Priest. 

Hymn 383. 

So, trusting in Thy might, 

He won a fair renown ; 
So, waxing valiant in the fight, 

He trod the lion down. 

Then rendered up to Thee 

The charge Thy love had given, 
And passed away Thy Face to see 

Revealed in highest heaven. 

On all our Bishops pour 

The Spirit of Thy grace ; 
That as he won the palm of yore, 

So they may run their race ; 

That, when this life is done, 

They may with him adore 
The ever Blessed Three in Onh 

In Miss for evermore. Amen.

M My Beloved 

OLAMB of God, Whose love divine 
Draws virgin-souls to follow Thee, 
And bids them earthly joys resign 
If so they may Thy beauty see ; 
The saint of whom we sing to-day 
Was faithful to Thy loving call, 
And, casting other hopes away, 
Took Thee to b» her God, her All. 
To Thee she yielded up her will, 
Her heart was drawn to Thine above ; 
Content if Thou wouUFst deign to fill 
Thine handmaid with Thy perfect love. 
Beneath Thy Cross she loved to stand, 
Like Mary in Thy dying hour, 

is mine, and I am His." 

That blessings from Thy pierced nand 
Might clothe her with undying power ; 
With power to win the Crown of light 
For virgin-martyrs stored on high, 
And ready keep her lamp at night 
To hail the Bridegroom drawing nigh. 
And surely Thou at last didst come 
To end the sorrows of Thy bride, 
And hear her to Thy peaceful home 
With Thee for ever to abide. 
All glory, Jesu, for the grace 
That drew Thy saint to follow Thee ; 
Grant us, too, in Thy love a place 
Both now and through eternity. Amen.

41 The Gentiles shall come to Thy Light." 

BRIGHTEST and best of the sons of the morning ! 
Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid! 
Star of the East, the horizon adorning, 
Guide where our Infant Redeemer is laid ! 

Cold on Thy candle the dew-drops are shining ; 

Low lies Thy Head with the beasts of the stall ; 
Angels adore Thee, in slumber reclining, 

Maker and Monarch arid Saviour of all. 

Say, shall we yield Thee, in costly devotion; 

Odours of Edom and offerings Divine ? 
Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 

Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine ? 

Yet may wc offer more ample oblation ; 

Love, more than gold, shall Thy favour secure : 
Richest of myrrh is the heart's adoration ; 

Sweetest of incense the prayer of the pure. 


Brightest and best of the sons of the morning 1 
Dawn Oil our darkness, and lend us thine aid I 

Star of the Bast, the horizon adorning, 

Guide where our Infant RSDSKMBB is laid ! — Amen.

JUST as I am, — without one plea, 
But that Thy Blood was shed for me, 
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee, 
O Lamb of God, I come ! 

Just as I am,— and waiting not 
To rid my soul of one dark blot, 
To Thee, Whose Blood can cleanse each spot, 
O Lamb of God, I come. 

Just as I am : though tossed about 
With many a conflict, many a doubt, 
Fightings within, and fears without, 

O Lamb of Goi>, I 

Just as I am, poor, weary, blind ; 
Sight, riches, healing of the mind. 
Yea, all I need, in Thee I find ; 
O Lamb of God, I come ! 

Just as T am ; Thou wilt receive, 
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve, 
Because Thy promise I believe,

I I 

' I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not. 

IN the hour of trial, 
Je»u ! plead for me, 
Lest, by base denial, 

I depart from Thee ; 
When Thou seest me waver, 

With a look recall, 
Nor, for fear or favour, 
Suffer me to fall. 

With forbidden pleasures 

Would this vain world charm, 
Or its sordid treasures 

Spread, to work me harm ; 
Bring to my remembrance 

Bad (rctliscmane, 
Or, in darker semblance, 

Cross-crowned Calvary. 

If with sore affliction, 

Thou in love chastise, 
Pour Thy benediction 

On the sacrifice ; 
Then upon Thine altar, 

Freely offered up, 
Though the flesh may falter, 

Faith shall drink the cup. 

When, in dust and ashes, 

To the grave I sink, 
While Heaven's glory flashes 

O'er the shelving brink: 
On Thy truth relying, 

Through that mcvtal strife. 
Lord, receive me, d^ing, 

To eternal Life. Asue?-

When it breaks upon the shore ; 

Alleluia ! for the Lord 

God Omnipotent shall reign ; 
Alleluia ! let the word 

Echo round the earth and main. 

Alleluia ! — Hark ! the sound, 

From the centre to the skies, 
"Wakes above, beneath, around, 

All creation's harmonies ; 

See Jehovah's banner furled ; 

Sheathed His sword ; He speaks — "'tis done ; 
And the kingdoms of this world 

Are the kingdoms of His Son. 

He shall reign from pole to pole 

With illimitable sway ; 
He shall reign, when like a scroll 

Yonder heavens have passed away ; 

Then the end ; beneath His rod 

Man's last enemy shall fall ; 
Alleluia! Christ in God, 

God in Ciigist is all in all. Amen.

MY God! how endless is Thy Love ! 
Thy gifts are every evening new ; 
And morning mercies from above 
Gently distil like early dew. 

Thou spread'st the curtains of the night, 
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours! 

Thy sovereign Word restores the light, 
And strengthens all my wearied powers. 

I yield those powers to Thy command ; 

To Thee I consecrate my days: 
Perpetual blessings from Thy Hand 

Demand perpetual songs of praise. 

To Father, Sox, and Ugly Gitost, 
The God whom earth and Heaven adore, 

From men and from the angel-host. 
Be praise and gloi y evermore. Amen.

And guard me with a watchful eye ; 
My noon-day walks He shall attend,

Or on the thirsty mountain pant, 
To fertile vales, and dewy meads, 
My weary wandering steps He leads : 
"Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow, 
Amidst the verdant landscape flow. 

Though in the path of death I tread, 

"With gloomy horrors overspread ; 

My stedfast heart shall fear no ill, 

For Thou, O Lord, art with me still ; 

Thy rod and staff shall give me aid, 

And guide me through the dreadful shade.

1 Thou slialt see the Land before thee.' 1 

THERE is a Land of pure delight, 
Where Saints immortal reign, 
Eternal day excludes the night, 
And pleasures banish pain. 

There everlasting spring abides, 
And never-withering flowers; 

Death, like a narrow sea, divides 
This heavenly land from ours. 

Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood 
Stand dressed in living green : 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood, 
While Jordan rolled between. 


O ! could we make our doubts remove, 
Those gloomy doubts that rise, 

And sec the Canaan that we love, 
With unbeclouded eyes ; 

Could we but climb where Moses stood, 

And view the landscape o'er ; 
Not Jordan's stream, not death's cold flood, 

Should fright us from the shore. 

O praise the Father, praise the Son, 

The LAMB for sinners given, 
And Holy Ghost, through Whom alone 

Our hearts are raised to Heaven.

In meek humility, 
This will I do, my dying Lokd,

This do in remembrance of Me." 

When to the Cross I turn mine eyes, 

And rest on Calvary, 
O Lamb of God, my Sacrifice 

I must remember Thee : 

Thy Body, broken for my sake, 

My Bread from Heaven shall be ; 
Thy testamental Cup I take, 

And thus remember Thee. 
Gethsemane can I forget ? 

Or there Thy conflict see, 
Thine agony and bloody sweat, 

And not remember Thee ? 

Remember Thee, and all Thy pains, 

And all Thy Love to me ; 
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, 

AY ill I remember Thee. 
And when these failing lips grow dumb, 

And mind and memory flee, 
When Thou shalt in Thy Kingdom come, 

Jesu, remember me. Amen.

And thirst our souls from Thee to fill. 
Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, 
Where'er our changeful lot is ca.-t ; 
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see. 
Blest, when our faith can hold Thee faat. 
O Jesu, ever with us stay ! 
Make all our moments calm and bright; 
Chase the dark night of sin away, 
Shed o'er the world Thy Holy Light.
